My self-summary
Southern Oregon guy up here for university to finish off my studies.
Forever a night owl. I like my bacon crispy. I come from a very Christian background, but not practicing anymore. I love learning about standup comedy as a craft and watching it. I'm incredibly hard to offend. I mess with computers. I love making people laugh. I love making connections and talking to all sorts of people. Everyone I meet knows something I don't.

Some things I enjoy doing lately include going to shows, dance parties, hiking shit, snowboarding, going to comedy clubs, talking about the presidential election, running, playing guitar/singing, listening to endless podcasts, brushing up on my Spanish/French.
What I’m doing with my life
Full-time at PSU. Barista on the side.

I'm what I like to call "indoorsy"; even though I hike and work outside all day I'm actually only inside at night because it's dark and scary out there. I've played in a recreational basketball league and a sand volleyball league (If you know of one in the area please tell me). Since moving here I've noticed everyone has a kayak - now I want to get my own kayak and paddle around the Willamette because what's the worst that can happen? Great white shark attack is the worst that can happen. Scientists recently found a tumor in a white shark for the first time...maybe they aren't so great after all.
I’m really good at
Making guacamole.

Doing accents. My British Cockney accent is probably too convincing.

I'm also good at sports. Basketball, football, soccer, just.. anything that involves running in general really. Also Pingpong, which is TOTALLY a sport. Fun fact, I was never picked last during all my years of school doing team sports! Except for bowling, but I don't consider that a sport. And DEFINITELY not because I totally suck at it. So hell yeah! Bowling isn't a sport!

The six things I could never do without
Laughter
Tea
IPAs
Green Things(e.g. plants, trees, forests)
Working out/Gyms – I need to exercise my body or I feel like crap.
Music

As a man I'd like to think that I don't need anything – like you could drop me in the middle of the wilderness like Aron Ralston, Chris Mccandless or Timothy Treadwell, with a knife and flint and I'd survive - but then I remember that the only one of them who made it out of the wilderness alive did it by sawing his own arm off with a swiss army knife. For that reason I'm gonna throw "my Iphone" on the list. That way even if there isn't service I can play Tetris as I die of thirst and/or exposure.

I realize this is not 6 things. Sometimes I'm a real outlaw.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lately, the presidential election honestly. I'm obsessed with politics this election cycle, in particular I spend a lot of time trying to figure out how the FUCK Donald Trump is leading the polls by so much.

Besides that, probably where to go hiking next.
On a typical Friday night I am
in quiet place studying,
hanging out with friends at a bar/trivia night/river,
You should message me if
→ You want to get coffee. Though to be honest coffee isn't really my cup of tea. Tea is, so I'll probably just get that. Who knows!

→ Please only message me if you know the difference between whom and Britt Hume.

→ You also share a deep-seated passion for chocolate milk.

→ Bonus points if you don't have a beard.
